We’ve invited eight great chefs and restaurants to challenge for The Oakheart Trophy and be declared the ‘UK’s Chilli Champion’. Tickets are £25 to try all the Chillies and help us find the ‘Best Tasting Chilli in Britain’. You can buy them here.
The competitors include Chilango, Leon, Chef Jocky, Lucky Chip, Gizzi Erskine, All-Star Lanes, Dock Kitchen and Carl Clarke of Disco Bistro. All of the Chillies will be tasted blind and everyone attending gets to vote for their favourite.
Bartenders from Milk & Honey and Danger of Death will provide the drinks from their festival bar. There will be free rum and lots of it including the brand new spicy Bacardi Oakheart and a giant barrel of Oakheart Grog.
The bar will be open all day from noon until 10 pm and the Chilli tasting will take place between 1-4 pm with the winner announced by 6 pm. The ticket price includes three free drinks and we’ll be running a pay bar after that with the usual super-reduced Tweet Up prices. There will be music and the after-party is at XOYO.
